alliance as well as the naacp. i also want to thank san francisco's district attorney george gascon who is at our public hearing at the safety committee a couple weeks back. george was there to speak on behalf of the bill we were working on together but he proactively came for this bill, s.b. 1506, to say that he's been law enforcement for 30 years and bring back 30-year experience to this consideration of this bill, and he said this bill makes sense because drug treatment works and this is in spite of the fact we'll be battling the district attorneys along with many other arms of public safety. [laughter] >> we've got the data, we've got the facts and we know this will provide great benefit to our communities, to our neighborhoods, and to all of california. thank you for your support. [applause] >> tal, i want to go back to the question that marty posed earlier, which is in effect this idea that in order to incentivize people making the decision to seek treatment that the fear of a felony conviction or possible state prison sentence could play a positive role. you talk to a lot of people

place this in a larger context for us, you heard george gascon's remarks. are they shared by folks in other states who have moved towards a similar type measure? >> there are a growing small but growing number of other district attorneys around the country in albany county, new york, in philadelphia, in atlanta, dallas, who are really beginning to break ranks with the broader d.a.'s associations and call for various types of reforms for the drug laws and drug enforcement. i think that the -- one of the contexts that's so important here and people so often lose sight of is that this bill, 1506, is a small effort in the state of california and in the country of the united states to try to roll back the horrendous rates of incarceration that have happened in this country over the last 30 years. i mean, that's the context, right? the united states, i think most of you know these numbers now, but we're less than 5% of the world's population but almost 25% of the world's incarcerated population. we rank first in the world in the per capita incarceration of our fellow citizens. the russians

you. >> district attorney george gascon held a community meeting in san francisco. his office has investigated at least 40 cases of elder scams in the city. >> it's very disturbing because they are the most vulnerable in the community that is being targeted for this. people that cannot defend themselves. quite frankly people that are unwilling to come to the police station because they are ashamed. >> reporter: gascon showed a video ha shows how the scam worked. the thieves convince the victims to put all of their money and jewelry in a bag in order to ward off bad spirits. the thieves then take the bag away. and when they return the bag they caution the owner not to open it. when they do open it they find that it is filled with rocks and that all of their valuables are gone. >> they are so superstitious and they believe they give all that money to those people who are trying to tell them how they can get rid of the sickness or how they can get rid of the problems. >> josephine moss says that the problem is compounded because the chinese elderly do not have bank accounts and they

illegal under california law. san francisco district attorney george gascon say there is is not enough evidence to move ahead with that case. >>> cadaver dogs are being brought in to search for a 20- year-old lafayette man missing somewhere along the sacramento river. brett olson is a student at cal polly. he was last seen at a place called beer can beach on sunday during a weekend float down the river. a $5,000 reward is being offered for his safe return. >>> police in walnut creek are asking for your help. they are searching for a girl that vanished two weeks ago. larissa huntsman was last seen walking away from the high school on august 24th. her mother has been uncooperative. her parents do not have custody of her. they are looking into the possibility a relative or another adult may have helped her disappear. >>> california regulators have not conducted workplace safety inspections of the oil refineries. of the few scheduled performed -- that number is far less than the 1,000 man hours inspections performed by federal officials in other states. the findings don't reflect the compl
